This is not a single republican "thing". Judging most hardcore feminist here (often hard-left) and all that it entrails, they are probably foaming at their mouth right now in anticipation.

Is it due to rising cases of carpal tunnel?


I like looking at pictures of naked women-sue me, however if looking at naked women is pornography, then what happens to all the magazines, skin bars and sex scenes in movies? it's baseless.

Now if you'll excuse me I need to fly to Florida and buy me a truckload of MAC-10's.

i wonder if those lawmakers are aware that humans are one of maybe 3 species to have sex for pleasure and do not have a particular mating season...

Spano said there's research showing a connection between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses,

I'd like to know more about this research myself. I always fear when politicians start sourcing the phrase, "research shows" without actually naming any research to go along with the phrase.

They're probably looking for an orgasm.

If they ban porn, they can count on more violent attacks. My guess is, they will just tax it more.

I´m not sure if I read this comment here or in a german forum but he had a point:
Those are not my words but he wrote it like this:


###
If the front-reason to ban porn is to protect women´s dignity:
We then need to ban romantic books with sex in it, too. Why? Because it´s porn for women. If my lady sneaks up to me after reading in one of her "romantic books" to have sex because the book made her horny...
Should I be hurt in my feelings because it´s clear that she will fantasize during sex me being in the role of the guy in the book?
###

Something along that line and he had a point!


I've tried using this argument many times before, and most people tend to just ignore it. Whenever anyone would get mad at certain video games for "objectifying women", I would throw this back at them. There's a disgusting hypocrisy when it comes to what women can have peacefully vs. what men can have peacefully. The key word is "peacefully", meaning they can have it without people trying to demand it to change.

The video game Dragon's Crown always comes to mind, because it had a long controversy around it's release. Feminists were upset at the art director for how he portrayed women in that game, especially the sorceress. For those that don't know, here's a quick video clip:



I love this guys artwork, everything is so exaggerated it's not even funny. His males have gigantic chests with tiny heads, the amazon has huge, beefy legs that could crush you with a flick, and yet everyone was upset over the sorceress. They felt it "objectified" women, and should be changed. My wife loved playing the sorceress, and had no issues whatsoever with the design. In fact, she loved it!

So, whenever people would point out how all of the guys are huge beef-cakes in fur thongs, everyone would tell them that doesn't count, because those are "male power fantasies". So, objectifying men doesn't count, because they're "power fantasies". Yet, somehow, the sorceress can't be dubbed a "power fantasy".

That's when I would pull out the romance novels. I would point out to them that men aren't asking for these things to be changed, or even gotten rid of, yet they objectify men all of the time. I always hear feminists claim that video games give men a false ideal of what women should be like, so wouldn't it stand to reason romance novels do the same?? Give a false ideal of what men should be like?? I also used to work at a bookstore, I've seen those book covers, yeah, those are NOT "male power fantasies". lol

About time! Everybody knows too much mast******* sends you blind. And another thing every upstanding christian knows that man has only so many "emissions" per lifetime and they don't want men to waste them needlessly.

Nevermind the gun debate and access to AR15s. Nevermind the cost of healthcare. Florida has far bigger concerns ya know?


Pornography is being declared a health risk by the Florida Legislature.

The state's House of Representatives approved the resolution by a voice vote Tuesday, despite some members asking why the topic is being taken up at this time. The resolution was sponsored by Rep. Ross Spano, who is running for attorney general.

Spano said there's research showing a connection between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, forming and maintaining intimate relationships and deviant sexual behavior. The resolution states a need for education, research and policy changes to protect Floridians, especially teenagers, from pornography.

www.usnews.com...

It's all about protecting Floridians right? By getting down and dirty and into the privacy of homes. This passed reportedly after the legislature declined to review a ban on semiautomatic guns and large capacity weapons.

I'd really like to know how vast of an issue pornography is compared to these other matters? Because I call nonsense I really do. It's any wonder why people are so earger to get involved in what consenting adults do. It's any wonder how they get voted in continiously as well?


Stuff like this is why a lot of people who are libertarian or even moderately conservative have an issue with Republicans. The establishment and Trump needs to get as far away from these types as possible.

Hehe, remember the outrage about Tomb Raider? And then the outrage about the nude patch? And then the outrage about Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider (the worst movie ever)?

Great times, great times

If you're weak and mentally unstable, go check yourself to an institution. Stop ruining it for everybody else.

Pretty much. Pornography in one form or another has been around for millennia and is actually beneficial for most average, normal people. However for those who are obsessed with pornography, whether they are "perverts" or even if they think they are just the opposite, THEY are the ones who have a social and mental problems. They are the addicts.

Addicted to being upset about things. I can only imagine how their blood boils, great, great.

I´ve learned you can´t help those people so instead of fighting the nonsense.... I now overly embrace it until they register that I´m making fun of them and that´s when the real fun starts.

Maybe I´m a little troll in this exact situation but when logic does not stick on them...well, there´s no more help left ^^. "Echo chambers" and such...

What's next, ban the nudie statues at the Ringling Museum? A replica of David's there, with his dong in full view out in the courtyard. So is Lygia, tied buck naked to a bull out front. Also, Apollo's buck-ass naked with HIS dong in full view not too far from her, too.

Remember folks, once they come for your porn, they'll come for everything unclothed eventually. It's just a matter of time before art is lumped in.

Art was already lumped in, see manchester museum... and there are examples before that I bet. Common sense has left the building a long time ago...

Last time I´ve checked we are still born naked and until that changes, I´ll never have a problem with nudity, even then... Elsewhere, there are real problems waiting to be solved.

Aint nobody got time for that??
